Having your hot tub right next to the wall of your home is probably too close. The steam that comes from the water may seep into windows and water splashed from the tub may cause a slippery walkway. A few feet away from your home and a few feet away from your walkway is typically the ideal combination.
Where should I place my hot tub?
Your hot tub can be placed just about anywhere—outdoors or even indoors when practical. You can put it on a deck, patio, rooftop entertaining area, or even under a gazebo. The perfect spot for your hot tub all depends on your home and landscape design and layout, as well as your personal tastes.
Does a hot tub have to be under a roof?
But are there benefits to putting an outdoor hot tub under a roof? Covering your hot tub with a roof will help protect it from weather damage, as well as provide privacy from neighbors. But a permanent roof can also block night sky views and remove some of the enjoyment of soaking outdoors in nature.
Is it more cost effective to leave hot tub on all the time?
Yes, you should leave your hot tub on all of the time. Hot tubs are designed to always be switched on and its more economical to keep the water hot than it is to heat it up from cold each time you want to use it.
How much does it cost to move a hot tub from one house to another?

Professional hot tub movers have the proper equipment, trucks, people power and experience to safely move your hot tub from one location to the next, or transport a newly purchased hot tub to your home or commercial property from the dealer.
